Infrared Photography by Mike Irwin
- By: Nate Kay
Trained in art since childhood, Mike Irwin has years of experience painting abstract paintings on canvas. It wasn’t until later on in his life that he was introduced to photography, and it didn’t take long before Mike was trying to figure out what other artistic or technical challenges a camera could present. One of his favorite places to photograph is the Southwest, where his use of infrared photography has produced some of the most notable and striking images in his portfolio.
“Infrared grabbed my attention and became a love of mine from the very start. It allows me to take an already impressive scene that would make a beautiful photograph, and add an additional layer of creativity and atmosphere to the image.”
